Wordsworth (127) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Draft pour at Whip In. Pours darkest brown nearly black with a thin khaki head that dissipates. Thin foamy lacing clings to the upper glass. Too cold for a smell test. Taste is lightly roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Thick mouthfeel that ends sort of sudsy. Pretty good stout from Independence.

Bottle poured a black hue w/ a small tan head. Mild roast aroma. Initial flavor is mild sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are chocolate, brown sugar, and a light roast. Full bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Purchased at the flagship Whole Foods in Austin, TX; enjoyed while binge-watching House of Cards. Appearance is a moderately thick pitch black with a thin white rim. Aroma of light molasses, chocolate, light sweetness. Taste goes down with a light burn, rich chocolate notes, oats, light hops. Overall it's pretty good.

This was a pretty decent oatmeal stout, but it lacks the smooth, slick character of the oatmeal that I wanted.

jmikolich (1399) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12oz bottle, pretty standard, unfortunately I could not find the oatmeal profile here, then again its not often that I can detect the oats, its smooth and easy drinking for 9%

Vcoggins (39) - Cypress, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Pours pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense dark tan head. Smells of chocolate, caramel, molasses, light coffee, roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, molasses, coffee. Slight bitterness from the roasted malts I suspect and not from the hops. Medium carbonation with a creamy, slick, really nice mouth feel. 9.2% ABV is there but well hidden. There is some warming on the finish. Overall this is an very nice oatmeal stout.
